Eclipse Meets Modular Cloud: Building for Power Users
Table of contents
As we journey through the ever-evolving landscape of blockchain technology, Eclipse and Modular Cloud are joining forces to transform the development of decentralized applications. But what exactly is Modular Cloud, and how does it integrate with Eclipse's rollups? Let's dive in.
What is Modular Cloud?
Modular Cloud, launching with its first product, Explorer, is revolutionizing the way we interact with modular blockchains. Explorer is a highly flexible block explorer that seamlessly integrates data availability, settlement, and execution layers into a unified platform. Modular Cloud provides robust solutions for indexing blockchain data, creating open-source block explorers, and building data processing pipelines for extracting valuable data from blockchain transactions.

How does the integration work for Eclipse rollups?
The integration between Eclipse and Modular Cloud starts with indexing. When a new chain is created on Eclipse, Modular Cloud begins indexing it into their cloud backend. EVM chains on Eclipse, implemented using Neon, run on top of the SVM execution environment. Modular Cloud can index both the EVM and SVM data for its block explorer.
Modular Cloud’s goal is to rely on standard node APIs as much as possible. But sometimes users want data that must be derived from complex queries and can’t be handled by querying a node. While indexing a chain, Modular Cloud sends blocks into a processing pipeline that extracts useful data, like token and NFT transfers. Currently, they support ERC20, ERC721, and ERC1155 tokens on EVM chains.
Their block explorer is a web interface for their cloud APIs, built on top of the cloud platform. These APIs are also accessible to third-party developers. If you would like early access, please reach out to their team.
By building this platform, Eclipse chains do not only enjoy word class developer experience, security, and scaling—but also tooling and cloud infrastructure.
What are the future plans for the integration?
The integration is already live, as exemplified by NautScan, one of Modular Cloud’s block explorers dedicated to Nautilus, built on Eclipse.
One of the exciting upcoming features is the display of links between Eclipse blocks and Celestia data on Modular Cloud's explorers. This will further enhance transparency and provide users with a more comprehensive understanding of their transactions.
In conclusion, the integration between Eclipse and Modular Cloud is more than just a partnership—it's a roadmap to a more efficient, scalable, and transparent future for decentralized applications.
